    Gender-based violence is a pervasive, persistent and global reality. Increasingly, it affects the environments where the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) operates, with impacts on agricultural and rural development, food security and nutrition, and rural poverty. Humanitarian emergencies, hunger, malnutrition and poverty tend to increase the prevalence of gender-based violence, which, in turn, undermines households, communities, and national food security and nutrition by impacting people’s livelihoods, health, skills and knowledge. This significantly reduces the resilience of survivors and weakens their capacity to be productive workers, earners and carers for the next generation, setting off a terrible circle of violence. With the new emerging global challenges and cries, including the COVID-19 pandemic, conflicts and climate change – poverty, food insecurity and gender-based violence are exacerbating. This called for a new updated guidance that addresses the new and intertwined challenges the world is now facing. This guidance is meant to support country offices, FAO staff and strategic partners in the fight against any form of gender-based violence, facilitate the integration of protection issues in an FAO project cycle, and support the collection and analysis of data disaggregated by sex and other social variables for generating the evidence for policy-making and planning of gender-responsive and gender-transformative interventions. The guide provides the needed tools and promising approaches and experiences of the last decade used successfully to address GBV and eliminate protection risks in the field. It is a continuing project that will evolve as FAO accumulates experiences and lessons learned in an ever-changing working environment.

    Dimitra Clubs: Leaving no one behind through community engagement and women’s empowerment 2023

    The world is not on track in making the pledge of leaving no one behind a reality, particularly in rural areas where most of the extreme poor live. Rural people in low-income countries increasingly face structural constraints in seizing socio-economic and political opportunities. In addition, gender discriminatory social norms prevent rural women and girls from realizing their full potential as leaders and economic agents, constraining the livelihoods and well-being of entire rural societies. In this context, development and humanitarian actors tend to overlook the use of community engagement and gender-transformative approaches, despite the fact that these are cost effective and have high returns. Considering these pressing challenges, it is of paramount importance to promote collective action at community level – ensuring ownership and sustainability – to trigger transformative changes in terms of gender equality, women’s leadership and social inclusion.

    The impact of COVID-19 on gender equality and food security in the Arab region with a focus on the Sudan and Iraq 2022

    A Regional Rapid Gender Analysis (RGA) is conducted with a special focus on Iraq and the Sudan as case studies to provide information about the different needs, capacities and coping strategies of women, men, boys and girls in a crisis. Rapid Gender Analysis is built up progressively: using a range of primary and secondary information to understand gender roles and relations and how they may change during a crisis. It provides practical programming and operational recommendations to meet the different needs of women, men, boys and girls and to ensure we ‘do no harm’.  Rapid gender analysis uses the tools and approaches of gender analysis fameworks and adapts them to the shorter time-frames, rapidly changing contexts, and insecure environments that often characterise humanitarian interventions, to ensure that data is available to inform humanitarian response efforts and contributing to recovery and preparedness efforts.
